    I've done a few of these over the last few weeks on houses using my brush and pole system. Then drying down by putting a cloth over my brush. I've also seen people mention pressure wAshing them with an extended lance, but couldn't find any on search. So thought i'd ask what method you guys use.

    ^^^ same, plus a pre-treatment of diluted Virosol if they are really green. If tiger stripes are visible, I'll get a magic sponge with neat Virosol or PVC cream cleaner on it.

    The old ways still work alright Davey but the old ways take three times longer and are three times less profitable!

    All depends how bad they are I suppose as you are not going to get the same results using a washer than you would say restoring badly stained plastics by hand. I know this from first hand that's was why I bought a power lance in the first place but found it to be useless on certain jobs. Can also cause damage to plastics, joints, force water into the loft space and not to mention bloody heavy/whipy to uses. Customers also don't like me blasting the **** out of their homes :D

    I find spraying TFR on the really filthy fascias , quick scrub with a Viking brush, then pressure washing off does the trick!
    Of course the removal of tiger stripes is extra! A lot extra!!!!!!!
